The Al-'Adudi Hospital (Persian: بیمارستان العضدی‎, Arabic: البيمارستان العضدي‎) was a bimaristan in Baghdad named after the Buyid Shahanshah 'Adud al-Dawla. The hospital was built in 979-980 on the site of the derelict Khuld Palace, and lasted until its destruction in 1258 during the Sack of Baghdad by the Mongol Empire.
